Design and produce an environment

In this resource students explore requirements for animal growth and the production and processing steps to get from a young animal to a food product (milk, meat, eggs). They create a flow chart to plot the steps involved. Students design and produce an environment for the farm animal. They evaluate their design, and suggest improvements where necessary, giving reasons. The focus of this task is for students to design and produce an environment for the technologies context of food and fibre production.
